I have an alternate method for hiding spare cash. I believe it runs in the neighbourhood of $200 Cdn, ($205 in equivalent US) in various denominations.

There is a concealed key box that can be inserted into a 2" hitch receiver. I don't have the link to the manufacturer's website but I understand it was quite expensive ($80ish). It would be good for your particular situation.

lol. thanks. it was sort of a Greek comedy. I forgot my SPOT2, which would have been in my pack in the SUV anyway. We both forgot our RoadID which had our spouses phone numbers, so we each took a turn walking to/fro the marina rather than one of us making both calls. We both saw the two guys (we believe stole the pack) just standing on a fishing pier w/o any gear. My spider sense was tingling but didn't say anything. In hindsight so was my buddys as we talked later. We only had one shirt, (mine, as his was stolen) so we had to switch off wearing it to the marina to look more presentable when asking for phone help, no public phones.

I think I have put like 5 comments on this thread. This might be my favorite thread on here right now. I hope more people list their On-Body Personal Survival Gear.

There are many threads of the similar kind scattered through the forum. OK, I'll just cross reference my recent stuff here (click images for a better quality zoom in).


My survival necklace



My belt kit



Keychain

Besides the keys you can spot:

  • Flashlight with neodymium magnet glued on the back.
  • Pills fob with emergency money.
  • USB T_Flash Reader with 8Gb card.
  • Steel Pen in magnetic holder.
  • Glow in the dark stick.
  • Length of paracord, with strong rings on the ends and braided long enough to work as a weapon (swing, block hands, strangle). Or to transform it to a necklace.

Car keys with remote are detachable.


"Wallet" or cards holder including emergency plastic car key.



Phone data/Charging cable is always in my pocket.

And finally my unique bone knife and PDA stylus. Always sharp and always on me:

Nice pics...

The only unusual thing my pic would have is a signal mirror, which I often use as a regular mirror. I see most folks don't carry around a mirror directly on their person. I'll post if I get motivated.

You're right Alex. We're addicted to EDC, PSK and FAK threads around here! This one has a specific focus to it though: What's on your body when you're in the wilderness? Many of us EDC different stuff in urban and wilderness environments, and even though we mostly carry packs overflowing with gear when we're in the wilds, what's actually on our body could mean the difference between life and death, or at least a comfortable wait for rescue. (As proven by Comms' story!)
